I'm probably in the minority but I'm not a big fan of the black ash look. Have you considered a solid black finish (dull, not shiny piano black)?

Regarding DRC, I have a newer Denon AVR-X2100W so it seems like this wouldn't be an issue, but is there any indication on the AVR itself if it is applying unwanted DRC or do you just have to "hear"...

Did you end up with 3 center channels? I am debating getting multiple center channels as well but probably only 2 since otherwise it would be a pseudo sound bar (no separation between each speaker)...

Is there a minimum recommended distance from the wall for the bipolar towers (rear-firing drivers) to be effective? I can only place them about 6 inches away. Thanks.

I actually like the idea of no controls on the sub itself since my 3-year-old likes to turn the knobs on my current subs :).

Have there been any reviews of these subs yet?

The specs for the L12 indicate it uses 7W of power in standby (red light). Is this a typo as this is relatively high for standby?

Why not offer HEOS upgrade for Denon AVRs?

I know they want you to buy more stuff but why force us to buy another external device when the AVR already has the hardware to act as a HEOS Link and Amp combined? A paid upgrade would make sense...

I wonder why they stopped making these? I have OMD-5s and like them but maybe the omnipolar sound was never that popular? It would be nice if Woot could get a hold of some more new product.

Does anyone else find the Netflix UI (not the video) to be a little "soft" almost as if it is lower resolution? Compared to the built-in Netflix on my Samsung TV that definitely seems to be the case.

Thanks, I didn't know that. I can still apply DPLIIx to the DTS-HD MA signal so does that override the default DTS 5.1 to 7.1 decoding?
